Sign up for a Produce Safety Alliance Grower Training at MOFGA

The University of Maine Cooperative Extension is presenting three sessions focused on the  FSMA training requirement for all covered produce growers, and recommended for all produce growers of all sizes.

Who Should Attend. Fruit and vegetable growers and others interested in learning about produce safety, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule, farm food safety best practices, and co-management of natural resources and food safety. The PSA Grower Training Course is one way to satisfy the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirement outlined in § 112.22(c) that requires “At least one supervisor or responsible party for your farm must have successfully completed food safety training at least equivalent to that received under standardized curriculum recognized as adequate by the Food and Drug Administration.”

Cost: $20/attendee. To register contact Theresa Tilton at theresa.tilton@maine.edu or 207-942-7396 or visit: https://extension.maine.edu/food-health/food-safety/northeast-produce-safety-training/
